Shelly Beach to Waa
Shelly Beach is the closest beach to Mombasa on the south coast. It is within easy reach from Likoni. The beach itself leads south from the mouth of the Kilindini harbour. It is not as sandy as many of the beaches further south, and, as it's name implies - has many washed up shells - although the number of the shells in recent times has dwindled.
There is little coastal development between Shelly Beach and Tiwi - however there is an exlcusive private home situated half way between Mombasa and Waa at Tijara Beach.
Waa is a small village situated on the Mombasa - Ukunda road a few kilometres north of Tiwi.
